I work full time as a communications advisor for an IT company.
Some of the projects I’m working on in my spare time (hahahaha) are: a novel set in ’80s New Zealand featuring arson and sheep farming, and a side hustle renovating furniture. My ADHD means I’m always working on something and coming up with shiny new ideas.
My days are filled with work, writing, reading, parenting, walking the dog, and going to pub quiz every week. My son is 12, so I am more careful these days what I write about him. (He checks the comics that feature him before I put them online.) I could do with a bit more sleep, and also a million dollars.
In 2018 I realised I didn’t have to be good at art to do comics, and I also realised I enjoy drawing. So I started making comics for fun. I haven’t done much drawing recently, as other projects have pushed comics down the to-do list.
I finished my BA in anthropology in 2017 and went straight into architecture in 2018. Architecture wasn’t the right path for me so I switched to design, but it taught me how to communicate visually instead of always relying on wordy words. I pulled out of university in 2020 at the end of the NZ covid lockdown; I may finish my design degree one day, but it’s not a priority at this point.
